    Cell phone for your book character. This is an authentic activity that students would relate to! They can do this about a character in their book for Social Studies or Com Arts. My middle school kids would love since their phones must stay in their lockers all day so this would give them a chance to feel connected.

This is a wonderful character lesson for students to assess qualities of different people. I start the lesson off with qualities that a teacher should possess. Of course, they have a lot to say about that – both positive but, mostly negative. Once complete, I have them to assess themselves. Believe it or not most of them are truly honest. There is also a character sheet for students to assess character traits from book characters. Enjoy!

Biography tube characters with quotes. This would be good for the Historical Figures we learn about in third grade.
